at current president obama's position on climate change. in reality, few office holders past, present or would-be have spent any political capital to battle global warming despite the fact that 2012 stands as a year when climate change became an undeniable reality. according to the oceanic and atmospheric administration the first nine months were the warmest on weather. the drought that ravaged the midwest destroying crops was the worst in half a century. wildfires that burned through 14,000 acres, an area of size of maryland were some of the most devastating on record and this summer arctic ice melted to its lowest levels since satellites began taking measurement a pattern that may have contributed to hurricane sandy. joining us now via skype is author and environmentalist bill mckiben. are you skyped in? are why there? >> low carbon footprint given the fact you are remote and not sitting with us on set. we're happy to have you on show. i want to talk about a number of things but first and foremost is sandy. this is going to hopefully engender a conversation about climate change alth

of the war on women. the republicans hate women guilty of all this misogyny. we've got a 26-year-old television star, female, basically saying if you're going to lose your virginity and vote at the same time, it's got to be with the right guy. vote for obama, just like having sex with obama. you've got to choose the right guy. if i were a woman today, this -- i would feel insulted each and every day. the way they look at women. all thinking the same way. all wanting the same things. i think that ad, some people look at it and they'll think it's cool and hip and representative of the country day modern pop culture but i think it's an insult to women everywhere. this is the kind of thing you do in desperation when you do have an agenda when you don't have anything positive to say about yourself. >> yes the hurler of insults of women everywhere is suddenly the defender. every one you just heard from thinks of ronald reagan as a perfectly reasonable candidate for saint hood. he got 100% of the votes from the can't take a joke crowd and 110 votes from the can't take a dirty joke crowd

men on the ticket, obama, biden, ryan and romney are in wisconsin because it is that tight. and if wisconsin goes for mitt romney, that will be a shocking development. republicans lost the state by 14 points four years ago. >> geraldo: ohio. everyone is talking about the buckeye state. what about ohio, scott? >> ohio is very close. showing it tied right now. that is a state again where the democrats actually think they had the edge on the ground. almost all of the polling has shown anything from a tie to a slight obama lead. this is a state that democrats are very confident they can hang on to. the president really needs to win both ohio and wisconsin if he wants to keep his job. romney needs to win one of those two. >> geraldo: iowa? >> iowa, another tie state. this this midwest that is become the pattern. the des moines register came out and for the first time in decades endorsed the republican candidate. why? the economy is the key issue. and in all of these states what we are starting to see is voters are saying they trust romney more than obama when it comes to the eco

more than the headlines >> you need to re-elect president barack obama to do it. thank you and god bless you. ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: still he knew he would make headlines when he jumped into this year's political fray. i don't remember a president in my lifetime that has done this. why have you done it? >> because i think if america makes the wrong decision, it will have very damaging consequences. and i've done it more than anything else because i believe president obama has made better decisions than many people give him credit for. >> reporter: but he is aware that his political advocacy could have repercussions for his charitable works. you have had a lot of republican support for these projects. have you been worried at all that you're sort of... your sort of reentry into the political world... >> yeah reporter: you have been? i was playing golf with unof my friends this summer. i thought i was going to talk him into voting for the president. he said to me, he said, "are you really going to give a good speech?" i said, "i'm going to give the best one i can." he s
is looking at whenever the next president steps into office. whether it's a second term for president obama or first term for president mitt romney. with president obama, i think what goes forward is the fact that now that this would be a settled eight-year deal, that congress -- things in congress would most likely free up. that this wouldn't be about people people on the right trying to make this a one-term presidency. >> i think health care probably has the biggest impact on the economy. and it affects every family. so i would like to see president obama go right back to health care. and to strengthen what we've got so far. and you will always have intensified effort to create jobs in america. that's -- no matter who wins the election that will have to be the focus, but i think for president obama, i think health care again, and i think immigration. >> i don't have children, have you children. i have nieces and nephews, i want them to be able to go to college and have a great life. so our definition of the american dream, greatly varied, some people want to live on the upper east side. o
the storm. and both mitt romney and president obama had already canceled campaign stops in virginia, as well. for the first time in 40 years, the des moines register has endorsed a republican for president. the newspaper's editorial board admitting it struggled with its decision, ultimately deciding on mitt romney because he, quote, offers a fresh economic vision. the registered board goes on to say, voters should give mitt romney a chance to correct the nation's fiscal course, and to implode the partisan gridlock that has shackled washington and the rest of america. >>> and early voting is under way in a lot of states, but in maryland it has been canceled, for today at least, due to the hurricane. virginia's governor said his state will do what it can to make sure that voters can get to the polls, despite sandy's impact. which may include power outages. >>> and it is a great day to be a giants fan. san francisco beat the detroit tigers last night to complete a four-game world series sweep. it's their second title in three years. pablo sand val was the series mvp. the city will honor the cha
of this stuff. i know he has been running for president for the last 20 years it seems, he wouldn't even be in the picture, but he is just trying to get his name out there, because obama and the storm will get all of the reaction. >> and it seems like him calling the governors would be just getting in the way. >> and what a coincidence he is doing this in all of the battleground states. >> he'll privatize anything for a buck. >> yeah. >> one way to get rid of these gop people that are having a problem with the government you give them a government job with fair wages and good pay, and all of a sudden 90% of them won't have a problem with the government. >> exactly. let's go to jones in alabama. >> caller: how are you doing chris? >> good. >> caller: this thing about privatizing fema that means they have a friend in the private sector that can go in and buy your home if there's no disaster relief, if you can't afford to fix it. the top 1% can easily go into small towns where they have businesses and corporations and buy up the whole town around them. >> yeah. >> th

. there clearly was a trend towards mitt romney five weeks ago, we were all pretty happy about the obama polls. i think right now there was clearly a trend towards mitt romney after the first debate, that looks like it has stalled out, where most of us thought a year ago, we would have said this is going to be a close race. it's pretty much the floor for any republican, and now we're seeing mitt romney at 48 to 49%, and that makes sense to me. you start looking around the states, and the president is in pretty darn good position. >> bill: right. the emphasis to me -- they keep talking about the national polls because they have to have a horse race right? >> right. >> bill: but we do not -- people have to understand we do not elect a president by a national vote. >> that's right. >> bill: it's state by state by state. >> so if you run the store up in texas. it doesn't matter. if you win by 50% or 60%, it doesn't matter. >> bill: that's right. the new york times this morning, i think maybe one of the few that you can really trust. their count of the electoral map right now is 2
to get things done. you know, elections have consequences. 60% of hoosiers polled reject president obama, and mr. donnelly supports him. we have two-thirds of hoosier who say we're on the wrong track. mr. donnelly wants that to continue for another four years. we have overwhelming, overwhelming numbering showing hoosiers disagree with obama care, and even after he said he was not going to support it, he caved in, fell to partisanship, and he did. that's not good. you know, i've been attacked on two fronts. number one, yes, because i stand up for principles. those two, specifically, standing up for the rule of law, oath of office, respect for pensioners, retired teachers, and cops. i stand for the principles. sadly, if mr. donnelly stood for his, we couldn't have obamacare today. it wouldn't be an issue. he says he's dick lugar like. you know, senator lugar and i were rivals, to have the privilege to stands at the pod -- podium, by we stand united here. harry reid can want continue will be the majority leer. still, mr. donnelly still can't say if he will support hymn. if you don't know wh
each one for president obama on regulatory, he has chilled growth, right? fiscal policy with $16 trillion in debt and trillion-dollar deficits every year, that's a chill on growth. tax policy has been complete uncertainty on his part, monetary policy you might argue that what chairman bernanke has done, you might argue that has helped growth at the margin or preserved jobs at margin at the risk of inflation. >> in a perfect world what do you think we could have been at? >> normalized i think a normal recovery, maybe if there's truth to what paul krugman talks about, maybe it's not 8% but it's 6%, 7%. you need 200 to 300,000 jobs a month to create the kind of jobs, 12 million jobs that mitt romney is talking about and that's, should be relatively easily doable. >> 2011 was slower than 2010 and 2012 will be slower than 2011, and we're starting at what just over 2%. i think it's horrible. i was trying with him but he just, i give up. there was five points he just gave me. he's right. you have to take the ball because i've thrown everything in a handout. he totally convinced me. i'm

, as you know, that came from government spending. all the job growth for the first six years -- let me just answer you. all the job growth essentially from 2000 to 2006 was public sector jobs. it was a giant expansion of the government. you have inverted. president obama has increased private sector jobs. we have lost public sector jobs. his proposals aren't about expanding the government. his proposals are actually insuring that middle class families have what they need to grow. >> when we come back, we are going to talk about one sector of the private sector in particular that has been an important part of our politics. that is the car. we are going to take our focus to the battle for the auto vote in ohio. the latest whopper that mitt romney is using to curry favor.

on a year over year basis but there's been little reaction in job growth. finally and i think we have these, here are a couple of ways you can look at the obama jobs record. this report if positive would put him over the top there, payrolls 320, i'm adding in, mark, do you think this is correct, benchmark revisions. >> you added it in. >> that's the way republicans would look at it. then you could say you no he what? the democrats might say this it's fair to exclude the first three months where there was substantial job declines so there's 2.6 million on the plus side if you take the first three months out and economists would say i don't really care about when he took office. look at the cycle. from february '09 through september of 2010 which was the trough it was down, the unemployment rate rose 1.7% during that period of time when the unemployment peak and from the peak to tooled it's been down 2.2 percentage points. presidents don't have as much as the political class thinks has to do with job growth and that's three different ways to look at it. you guys can pick any numbers you like.
for change in the next four years 12,347 how optimistic is team obama that they can carry the day. >> it's insane. i'm at a field office, and people are pumped. i was in aurora, colorado, and i saw a nine-year-old making phone calls for the obama campaign. young, old white black everyone is super pumped to be here. they know they're going to win out, and so it's really exciting. >> jennifer: that is great. thank you so much for giving us a little bit of the flavor on the ground. we look forward to welcoming inside "the war room." that's "the war room's" own sheetal dihr. the destruction that was caused by hurricane sandy will happen again and again and again unless we do something to combat climate change. dr. jeffrey sachs will be my guest and you'll only find him in "the war room."

and endorsed president obama. >> yes, of course he had endorsed george bush four years before the last election. but there were a number of factors, but lead with climate change and that sandy has solidified or raised the stakes in the whole deal. he contrasted the two candidates, about their concerned levels on climate change. but then he called out a number of other things as well. largely social policies education, health care same-sex marriage, women's abortion rights, and so that's the case that he made. >> bill: a significant endorsement, i think. >> although he said -- two things that were interesting, number one that he might well have endorsed romney if it had been the mitt romney who had been governor of massachusetts. >> bill: because he is governor of massachusetts, for example, he banned assault weapons. >> okay. >> bill: right? >> yeah, but his point was -- he said it was a different candidate. >> bill: now he is for assault weapons so go figure. >> he also said he had been really disappointed in the last four years. he wasn't saying president obama
: in the last four years you cut lances on federal land and waters in half. >> obama: not true. >> romney: how much did you cut them. >> obama: not true. governor, we produced more oil. >> cenk: yeah, i'm more pro-oil more pro-coal and then i brag that i drill more than president bush. and then bragging how romney isn't pro coal enough. i was. >> listening to governor romney talking about how he was the champion of coal. when he was the governor, he stood in front of a coal fire plant and said this plant kills people. now he's running around talking like he's mr. coal. come on. come on. you know that's not on the level. does anybody ever actually look at that guy and think he's really into coal? >> cenk: ha, ha, ha, romney is not into coal enough. if you elect an democrat we'll really be into coal. even into coal even more. climate change, mtv who gives a damn about that. and did it help? did your strategy a piece oil and coal, did it help? no super pacs run by the coal and oil industries are running this ad against president obama any way. >> we can build on that rock for generations to come.
. >> jennifer: i know president obama was tested last year with hurricane irene, hopefully the response is going to compare favorably this time. you are no long we are the agency correct? >> that's correct. >> jennifer: right. so do you watch all of this stuff very carefully. >> absolutely. james lee, being the formal fema director, we work side by side with the state and local governments helping them prepare and respond to. i have been actively for the last 20 years, so i'm very interested in how this turning out. >> jennifer: i sure appreciate you coming inside "the war room" to share with us a bit of the importance of fema especially on a day and at a time that we know there is some challenges to the fema budget. thanks to mark merit, former fema official. now to my point. mitt romney wants to move disaster relief to the state or private level. he said that at a debate in the primaries, and he said that because he thinks that federal spending on things like disaster relief, he said, it is quote, immoral. so here is what he said at that debate last year. take a li
on track is one of the big e issues in the country's election. it could boost barack obama's chances of winning a second term. the economy grew slightly more in the third quarter of this year. released their preliminary gross domestic product figures for the july to september period. gdp grew at an annualized rate after 2%. economists forecasted growth at 1.9%. the rate in the previous quarter was 1.3% which led to further concerns about the economic outlook. consumers helped lead improvement in the latest quarter. personal consumption accounts for nearly 3/4 of the activity and it grew 2%. housing surged more than 14%. people in business appeared more cautious. their spending is down 1.3% from the previous quarter. exports shrank 1.6%. they were down for the first time since early 2009. >>> here's the three-day world weather forecast. >>> that's all for this hour on "newsline." i'm keiko kitagawa in tokyo. thank you for joining us.
the iranian new year, if president obama wins, there is going to be a window of opportunity to move very quickly for negotiations. in fact, one meeting has already been scheduled. this will be an opportune time, because it is right at a time in which obama's political capital will be at its maximum. the iranians will be right before entering their new year, and then after that their election season, which they would once again be politically paralyzed. and if that opportunity can be utilized, it will be very interesting to see, do both sides have the discipline? both sides claim they're winning and doing great. they all have their rhetoric and talking points as to why the a rain spring has been fantastic for them, but do they have the ability and the discipline to go to the negotiating table and translate whatever strength it is that they have into a strong negotiating position and then change that strength into an actual deal? i suspect if we don't see something -- obviously i don't think it will be an end deal at all before the iranian new deal in march -- but if there isn't any progre

kept digging and in september of 2009, the first year that the obamas were in the why she called us back and said you know i found something really interesting and would you be interested in covering it? i found myself on a plane to birmingham, alabama where i visited churches, archives and tried to find out anything, as much as i could about a man at the name of adolphus shield who is the first lady's great great grandfather who happens to be bi-racial. and the story him ran a month later in the front page of "the new york times" about dolphins' parents, knelt any of the first lady's great great great grandmother who was a slave girl valued at $475 in 1852 and the first lady's great, great, great grandfather who was a white man whose identity was a mystery. and the day after the article ran, and editor at harpercollins sent me an e-mail and said wow that was fascinating. a little snippet of the first lady's family tree and what do you think about doing a book on the whole thing and that is how i got started. >> we are glad you got started on the book because it really opened up a l
and the politics of it. i think you've just got the feeling that it isn't about that with president obama. >> i think you're spot on. i think mitt romney obviously ran bain capital for several years. one of my college teammates goes to church with mitt romney which is a little awkward for me. >> stephanie: awkward. [ laughter ] >> and you know, i think -- you know, mitt romney sort of looks at this as like a business. and i think there is a certain level of looking at running -- there is a certain part of running the american government in this country that is business-like. but there is no business element to figuring out how to help people who are upside down on their mortgages going through a refinancing program, there's no business side to trying to figure out how to make america the most competitive place for students and for our universities by expanding. there are certain things that you can't put like -- i think they call it at school -- there are certain things that don't have a return on investment calculation. >
